10th May 2021 - UKCA Marking (UK Conformity Assessed) Replaces The CE Standard
The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking is a new UK product marking that is used for goods being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). It covers most goods which previously required the CE marking. The UKCA marking applies to most goods previously subject to the CE marking.
UKCA will be used to replace the CE Marking requirements for products being placed on the GB market from the 1st January 2021. For most products there is a transitional arrangement for acceptance of CE marking until 1st January 2022 (the exception being marine equipment and medical devices for example which have longer periods). AMI value quality standards as a vital part of all aspects of our business and our full listing of approvals can be found here www.ami-sheffield.co.uk/accreditationsRead More
